Vancouver, BC: WIRTH Hats is excited to partner with Phare – a Vancouver -based organization dedicated to supporting convenient and affordable counselling services in the area of mental health.
WIRTH Hats continuously works towards building an inclusive culture, where people can share feelings and thoughts without fear and stigma. It is believed that providing accessible and affordable counselling and therapy could be a crucial gateway to promoting mental health.
Proceeds from WIRTH Hat sales go toward supporting our counselling fund, which pays for individuals who would otherwise be unable to afford counselling. WIRTH Hats have been shipped to over 25 + countries around the world as we continue to amplify the WIRTH reach.

“Phare is thrilled to join forces with WIRTH Hats to help make counselling more accessible. Both Phare and WIRTH want to make the world better by making it feel better and that's no small thing. In fact, it might be the biggest thing of all. Thanks, WIRTH.”
– Dr. Ray Hsu, co-founder of Phare
Phare is a community, a mission, and a revolution. The idea for Phare was born during the COVID-19 pandemic. We were inspired by organizations who were providing accessible counselling to frontline and essential workers. But it made us realize that the way people typically access counselling just doesn’t work. People aren’t getting the help they need because of high costs, long waitlists, and confusing processes. Together, we’re working to change that. We created a new sustainable system that removes the barriers of access and focuses on what really matters: improving mental health for everyone.
